Armenia first deputy defense minister resigns

PanARMENIAN.Net - First deputy defense minister Artak Zakaryan on Tuesday, May 8 submitted his resignation.

“Due to changes in the political situation, I have decided to resign from the post of the first deputy defense minister,” Zakaryan said in a statement.

Zakaryan said he believes that the new Cabinet must be formed from the new prime minister’s team.

Newly-elected prime minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said earlier that changes will be made in the country’s Cabinet, without providing details.

The parliament on Tuesday elected Pashinyan as the country’s new prime minister after weeks of political standoff, a civil campaign against the ruling authorities and massive protests in Yerevan and across the country.
